    I have a 1989 Strat Plus in pewter. I would like to change the pickguard to a different color because the white pickguard with white lace sensor pickups just doesn't look like a strat. Would black work? Are there any suggestions for what might work. Over the life of the guitar I have tried black pearl, white pearl and parchment.

    Pics of the guitar would help.
    Without pics I would likely recommend something like this.

    But hey! At least it wouldn't be mint. :D

    White was stock but MAYBE a black pearlescent might look smashing.
    But you already tried that - and others - so maybe pink

    It seems that it's the plain look of the Lace pickups against the white pickguard that's your problem. Google Pewter Stratocaster and then select images and scroll through the images. ....
